There are 2 parts of my feelings about Joan .
1: Her singing . Fine to great . Especially on the folk material, and some of her Dylan, though, get this, I sort of like goofy Nana Mouskouri better in the same material (!). some of it clearly base on Baez's versions . Compare .

Boy, was that was a digression !
2. Her trying to stay relevant, and sometimes coming off as an unwelcome guest . sort of the way Ginsberg would show up on a Clash album . And "Children of the 80's" what a lame attempt to hitch on to the Grateful Dead thing . With the most cringe worthy lyrics ever . And the preachy politics ! Dylan, who has been, to be honest a real shit to her, but she just didn't get it when he left "protest songs" behind him . The Baez/Dead thing was an odd chapter indeed !
